Just a couple of weeks ago, Nuke the Fridge revealed a few items of merchandise that will tie-in to Michael Bay’s “Tranformers: Age of Extinction.” Now courtesy of weibo user Harry Huo, we have new images from some prototype box art. The images reveal a few of the Dinobots in dinosaur mode. Also, be on the lookout for Optimus Prime in his new Autobot form.
Tyrannosaurus Rex – Grimlock
Triceratops – Slag
Velociraptor – ? (Beast Wars’ Predacon (Decepticon) known as Dinobot)
Pteranodon – Swoop
Spinosaurus – ?
*Missing are Sludge (Apatosaurus) and Snarl (Stegosaurus). These names do not fit the characteristics of either a Velociraptor or Spinosaurus. One wonders if “Jurassic Park” had any influence on which dinosaurs would be part of the Dinobot team.
What do you think?
Here is a brief storyline for the action/adventure/sci-fi film.
A mechanic and his daughter make a discovery that brings Autobots, Decepticons and a paranoid government official down on them.
